DRDO has developed various capabilities in the vast area of the country for defence technologies and has been evolved as a powerful defence and R & D hub over a period of time. Today the organisation with the help of its critical strategic defence technology and numerous state of the art weapons in the field of RADARS, SONARS, missiles and Aeronautics, Electronic warfare, CBRN protection, Life Support Technologies has been supporting a lot for making our nation to be remarked worldwide.
Defence Research & Development Organisation is an agency which was formed by the merger of technical development establishment and the Directorate of technical development and production of the Indian Ordnance factories with the defence science organization who worked for the military research and development. It was formed in the year 1958 and its headquarter is in New Delhi. Doctor G. Satheesh Reddy was the current chairman of DRDO.
The main motto of DRDO is to make the nation strong and self-reliant in terms of Science and Technology. Agni and Prithvi are the missiles developed by DRDO. More than 50 Laboratories work in the development of Technologies like Aeronautics Armanent and electronics, combat vehicle engineering system. DRDO help in maintaining peace in the nation by helping the Indian army.
LIST OF ONGOING PROJECTS OF DEFENCE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ORGANISATION (DRDO) OF INDIA
- Pranash missile range 200km.
- Hybrid ocins and food safety.
- Design and development of laser Spot detector.
- Development of a low power video compression module using Ti’s DaVinci board along with its FPGA realization.
- Development of an electrochemical biosensors system for the rapid detection of biological warfare agents.
- Development of lightweight and anti-corrosive material for the Shoe outsole
PRANASH MISSSILE RANGE 200KM
Indian Army used Prahaar missile the range of Prahaar missile is 150 kilometer due to Limited range Indian Army wanted a missile of better range. Therefore Defence Research And Development Organization (DRDO) of India, developed new tactical ballistic missile with range of 200 km to help Indian Army to find their target. DRDO has named this missile PRANASH.
DRDO work on PRANASH missile and it is capable to finding targets at a range of 200 km. Defence research and development Organisation of India trial this missile on 2021.
This is a non Nuclear missile and it is developed by using single-stage solid propellant engine by Defence Research and Development Organizations(DRDO).
HYBRID OCINS AND FOOD SAFETY
Hybrid ocins and food safety is one of the ongoing project of DRDO under the supervision of Dr K. Raja Gopal, ( CSIR, CFTRI, Mysore). Nowadays quality of food is changed by using ocins example (bacteriocins lactocins and enteroons). Ocin help in food preservation by spoiling the quality of food.
The main focus of this project is to provide good quality food by preventing food spoilage. food spoilage cannot be control so easily, as it is a server problem, because ocins are used to control microbial growth in food. Therefore there is a need to identify effective preservation methods.
An avenue taken to reduce food spoilage could be improving the quality of food overall. An icp oes analysis could be performed to identify whether the food is safe for consumption or not. It can also search for toxin metals and unwanted compounds to remove and improve food.
Increasing food safety will require a multi-pronged approach to be done well.
Design And Development Of Laser Spot Detector
Design and development of laser spot detector is an ongoing project of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), under the supervision of Dr Mukul Sarkar, IIT Delhi Institute. Armament Design Mechanism And Ballistic (ADMB) panel handle this project. Laser transmitters help in detecting the target and location of the criminal. In the laser transmitter, IR eye-safe laser is used that helps in detecting distance target. DRDO has developed various laser equipment that helped the Indian army in finding plans of criminal and their target.
LASTEC has developed an optical target locator (OT 300) for the detection of a passive threat. This provides a clear picture of the target along with the background of the target and it helps the Indian Army in knowing the plan and strategy of criminals. There is user-friendly and simple techniques used for systemic operations.
Numerical Stimulation Of Electromagnetic Railgun
Numerical simulation of the electromagnetic railgun is an on-going project of DRDO. Armament Sensor and Electronic (ASE) panels handle this project, under the supervision of Smt. Manika Sharma. In order to improve the performance of railgun stimulation coding is developed to predict the performance of railgun. It helps in increasing the speed of railgun. Hypervelocity projectiles were developed by using electromagnetic railgun. It helps in analyzing the generation mechanisms. Significance improvement in the performance of railgun is one of the major issues of this project. Earlier the efficiency of railgun varied between 4 to 5%. This helps in reducing variation in the efficiency of the railgun.
Development of a low power video compression and enhancement module using TI’s DaVinci board along with its FPGA realizations –
Development of a low power video compression and enhancement module using Tl’s Davinci board along with its FPGA realizations is ongoing project of DRDO.Under the supervision and guidance of Dr. Manish Okade, this project is going. It is handled by an Armament sensor & electronic(ASE) panel. This technology helps in the development of low-power, high-performance, reliable, less-space modules.
Development of an electrochemical biosensor system for the rapid detection of biological Warfare agent –
The development of an electrochemical biosensor system for the rapid detection of biological Warfare agents is on-going project of DRDO, under the supervision of Dr. MS Santosh Jyothy Institute of Technology, Karnataka. To Detect and identify biological Warfare is a measure of challenges nowadays.
Water, soil, air from sampling location is used for identification of microorganism. Sensitivity and selectivity to operate in turbot media are the advantages of biosensor electrochemical. The development of biosensors for biological Warfare agents is for the interest of the Indian Army. Bacteria, viruses, and toxins that are present in air food, or water to spread terrorism and cause disease or death to human animals and plants.
Development of lightweight and anticorrosive material for Shoe outsoles-
Under the supervision of Dr. Sunirmal Jana, CSIR Central glass and ceramic research Institute, Kolkata development of lightweight and anti corrosive material for Shoe outsoles project goes on. Nano-graphite incorporated polyurethane-based nanocomposite has been developed up to 2 kg batch level for creating lightweight, anticorrosive and versatile shoe-outsoles for the utilization of military personnel working especially in a marine environment. A facility has been created with the designed and fabricated reactor/smelter for creating the nanocomposite by bottom pouring melt quenching technique. Samples are delivered for testing. This helps the Indian army to hold their operations effectively. Lightweight shoes help in running fast and in walking.
